Developing Your True Interests
The Ninth Grade program is designed for students who prefer academically independent and individualized curriculum prior to moving to a full time high school experience. Nearly all of our ninth graders are graduates from our eighth grade class. The curriculum is modeled after a traditional ‘freshman’ program, but with greater emphasis on English and mathematics via independent studies and projects. Students study biology and world history, and continue with the existing Middle School curriculum for music, art, and technology. Students who complete our Ninth Grade program enter high school with outstanding academic skills, strong social engagement, and the ability to think independently.
